My CD4 count is 434 abd VL is 24,452 I am worried

Nov 3, 2013

I traveled out of town and my bags were stolen along with my Complera. I have been out of meds for almost three months. I have returned and was told my CD4 number was 434 and a VL of 24,452. I should be placed on meds very soon. I am just very worried that my numbers are really bad. In your opinion how bad are they? I am super concerned.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Those numbers are not that bad at all. Restarting Complera should get you to undetectable in pretty short order.

RE: HIV log and Vl numbers
low CD4 in 2 years? low VL only 5 days on HARRT? possible?
